Thematic Network on Geopolitics and Security

The Thematic Network (TN) on Geopolitics and Security is a joint network by the University of the Arctic and the Northern Research Forum (NRF). Its main aim is to examine and combine two focus areas — Studies on Geopolitics, and Security Studies — and, based on that, to draw up a holistic picture on Arctic geopolitics and Northern security in globalization, as well as to identify and analyze the major changes of them and their possible global effects. Another aim is to promote ’interdisciplinarity’, to implement the interplay between research and teaching, and the discussion between young and senior scholars, as well as to promote the interplay between science and politics, and that between scientific and traditional knowledge(s).
